Hi, my name’s Daniel Smith and I’m the owner of Mosquito Shield of North Central New Jersey.
I’m excited to share that I am setting the industry standard for residential mosquito control services, as well as tick control. I achieve this by utilizing a proprietary blend of natural oils, select control products, and a flexible spraying schedule that maximizes effectiveness.
Mosquito Shield has been in the industry for over twenty years and has continually refined the product/service protocol. I wanted to run a business that offered a service that I, and my customers, can trust.
I appreciate the customer-forward position that Mosquito Shield takes, as that is very much aligned to how I conduct business. I truly believe we provide superior service and annual retention rates prove that customers appreciate our service.
As owner, I want to provide a mosquito and tick control solution to homeowners (and business owners) so that they and their guests can fully enjoy their outdoor property.
Utilizing a protocol to visit each of my customers’ properties every two weeks on average, we provide service more frequently than other companies and will provide a service call at no charge if needed. I hire a team of technicians who are fully trained, knowledgeable, and professional.
Vision: My team and I strive to be the most trusted provider for our customers. We approach each property with respect and ensure that while we are eradicating mosquitoes and ticks, we are protecting pollinators by avoiding areas where they forage.
Goals: My customers’ satisfaction is my #1 goal.
Values: We espouse the following in all our endeavors – Trust, Professionalism, Responsibility, Generosity, Flexibility
Passion: My passion is to be the most trusted, responsible, and responsive vendor. It makes me so happy to know people can enjoy their yards upon using Mosquito Shield services.
After spending twenty years as a professional photographer in New York City, I was contemplating a career change. At that time, my wife, Paula, and I had a baby and moved to the suburbs of New Jersey.
As homeowners looking forward to enjoying barbecuing on the back deck, we soon realized that our yard was overrun with mosquitoes. I realized at that time I needed a mosquito control solution for my own property. That’s what originally drove me to Mosquito Shield. I wanted to be able to enjoy my yard to the fullest, and I simply wasn’t able to do that without mosquito control.
Coincidentally, Paula discovered through LinkedIn that a former colleague of hers ran a franchise mosquito control business in South Carolina. A number of phone calls followed, through which I learned about the industry and the business opportunity.
I then looked into various franchise opportunities and felt Mosquito Shield was the best fit – based on their years in the business and expertise, and the fact that the territory that my home town is in was available.
While I am a New Jersey native (South Jersey), my family and I were new to South Orange, NJ when we moved here in 2018. As I didn’t have a large network of friends in the area, we utilized social media to help grow our business when it was first launched. It resonated with people who were interested in my services that I was their neighbor, and am always available to answer any questions.
I strive to make sure my customers’ expectations are met (or exceeded). My wife assists me as needed and I have a team of techs who I train and assist throughout the season.
Last year, I expanded my territory so it stretches from towns along the Hudson River (ie Hoboken, Jersey City) all the way to the western parts of Morris County. There are approximately 900,000 serviceable households in my territory – and they range in size from 0.1 to 2.0 acres (the smaller properties are largely on the eastern side of the territory).
As for some of my family’s favorite spots, we like to go for walks or bike rides in the South Mountain reservation. During the summer, my wife and daughter are frequent visitors to the town pool or the beaches in NJ. As a family, we enjoy patronizing local restaurants in South Orange, Maplewood, West Orange, and Millburn. My daughter is 4 years old, so we’ve probably visited every playground in the area as well.
In addition to going through regular training with Mosquito Shield personnel, I take continuing education classes through the New Jersey Pest Management Association and the EPA. I am certified with the NJDEP and am always reading about industry topics to stay abreast of current information and to further my own education – not only about mosquito control but about pest control in general.
Having expertise in the services my business provides is very important to me. Additionally, I am communicative and strive to respond to inquiries and special requests within a timely manner.
As a photographer and professional retoucher, I was a perfectionist and studied my craft continuously. I approach my Mosquito Shield business in the same way – always learning, always striving to provide the best service a homeowner can expect.
If a customer ever has any questions or concerns, I am available to speak with them anytime to provide a solution. My customers’ satisfaction is my #1 goal. Going into my fifth season, over 90% of my customers return year over year.
As the owner of Mosquito Shield, your satisfaction is my #1 goal.
I have a team of knowledgeable technicians who will take care of your property so that you and your family can enjoy your yard all season long. We approach each property with respect and ensure that while we are eradicating mosquitoes and ticks, we follow a strict protocol to protect pollinators as well.
I am always available to answer any questions you have, and welcome you to reach out to me anytime.
There are no contracts to sign and customers can cancel service at any time.
Mosquito Shield® was founded in 2001 as a direct answer to a major problem: mosquitoes. In the absence of an effective mosquito control service and the inadequacy of personal products, a new solution was necessary.
For the past two decades, we’ve mastered our blend of all-natural oils and select control products to become that solution. We’ve tested different blends, application methods, and frequencies of applications to perfect an effective and responsible solution. The result is Mosquito Shield.
Our numbers would demonstrate that we’ve filled the gap. 8 out of every 10 customers return year after year, and we now service tens of thousands of American households.

Mosquito Shield® is a leading residential mosquito and tick control service with over 120 franchise locations across the United States. Each of Mosquito Shield’s franchises are owned and operated by independent local business men and women.
With the threat of mosquito and tick-borne illnesses on the rise in the United States, Mosquito Shield Franchise Corporation was launched in 2013 and has since developed into a leading franchise opportunity in the growing pest-control industry.
We’re the only company in the industry that reacts to mosquito behavior. Without a set schedule, we can adapt to your yard's needs and the mosquitoes around it.
On average, we visit every 10-17 days to ensure a mosquito-free lifestyle.
Our special blend began 20 years ago and we continually evolve it to maximize effectiveness.
Science created our formula, and science continues to adapt it so it remains the most effective spray in the game.
All of our technicians are trained in environmentally smart practices. They target active mosquito areas and are taught the signs to recognize them.
This means less overall spraying, more dead mosquitoes, and a healthy ecosystem in your backyard.
If you’re not happy with our services, let us know. We’ll work hard to make it right, including offering a service call spray if needed.
If you’re unhappy with the results after your first visit, simply notify us within 7 days and we will issue you a full refund.
Our technicians are trained specifically on mosquito and tick control products. We’re not just another guy with a backpack and van or a lawn care provider that will “set and forget” later. This is what we do and we take it very seriously. Not only are our technicians trained on products, they’re trained on mosquito and tick behavior as well as species identification.
That knowledge is used to maximize treatments and minimize the time taken to do it.
